Subject: [RFC 0/5] hid: Extending the device-driver matching mechanism
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Tuesday 3rd April 2012 07:05:25 UTC (over 4 years ago)
Hi Jiri,

These patches were first sent out as a reply to Benjamin's autoloading
patch (http://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-input/msg20001.html),
but it
seems more appropriate as an RFC.

The idea is to parse the hid descriptors before adding the device,
such that the device identifier, in particular the device/modalias,
can be augmented by the report information. This approach solves the
generic auto-loading problem we face today, here exemplified by a
solution for hid-multitouch.

The patches apply cleanly to 3.3 for easy testing.

Thanks,
Henrik
